Expo Hotel Barcelona
Ranked #336 of 519 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Just returned from a two night stay in Barcelona. Hotel was fantastic, very friendly staff. Great location - only 30 minute walk to the nou camp (we were there to watch Barcelona play) and metro links were easily accessible to get to the city centre. The rooms were perfect for our trip and none of us can had any complaints. Breakfast was great and we had an evening snack that was top quality and reasonably priced compared to places in the main touristy locations. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a chilled, comfortable stay.

Stayed: January 2013, traveled with friends

The Expo hotel is just opposite Sants station - a central hub to many other parts of Spain. It's a big hotel so doesn't have a particularly cosy or personal feel but if you are looking for a clean, modern room and excellent facilities, it's a great choice. The rooftop restaurant/bar and pool/sunloungers overlook the whole city, giving quite breathtaking views which were definitely the highlight of this hotel. It's quite a walk from the Ramblas and other central districts but the metro at Sants is just across the square.

We have stayed in this hotel for couple of times, and we'll go again. Room was spacious, and had a nice size and modern bathrooms.

Breakfast is worth to try, lots of variety, with good quality.

Expo Hotel is little bit far away centre of Barcelona, and the metro station is very near. but the metro lines are excellent.

Surroundings are quiet.

Staff are very helpful and mostly friendly.

As everyone else has said location by the Barcelona Sants Station excellent for train to and from airport as well as the underground. Pleasantly surprised with very little noise given very close to major train station but as you will see if you stay here the overground railway actually goes underground way before the station so you never actually see or hear the trains. The T10 ticket was a great suggestion by earlier reviewer which cost us 8.50 euro's at the airport lasting for 10 journeys. If you go as a couple buy one and you can both get 5 journeys each from it. It can be used on overground trains, underground trains and local buses. You have 75 mins to get to your destination using any combination of the above which is well sufficient for getting anywhere in Barca!

Friendly staff especially on reception - never had a meal in the hotel as it was a short break but staff in bar area were friendly also.

Had a fab tour of Barcelona and the hop on hop off bus stops at the other side of the station so again really handy for getting around. It's worthwhile buying a heavily discounted ticket for a 2 day pass as you can really get a chance to see all Barcelona has to offer.

Good large rooms, well soundproofed, with comfortable beds, all facilities, english tv, good breakfast buffet, very good value. Located next to the main station, metro links to all other areas. I found this was much better than a cramped room in an old building.

Great location near the main railway station but let down by the standard of the rooms.This was a 4 star hotel?? - Not in my book.The room had damp patches in several points and the air con did not work.We had to sleep with the window open which made it very noisy.Beds ok but the breakfast was poor with not enough staff and for the hot choice bacon or nothing! The staff where good but can only work with what they are given.
